This is a well-kept municipal park operated by the City of High Point. We liked it - nice quiet place on a real pretty lake, golf course next door, many tennis courts, marina and boat launch ramps, picnic areas near lake, good for walking and running too. Bathrooms were older but clean and usable. Washer and dryer at bathhouse too. Problems were lots of sloped sites, bring boards and blocks. Sewer connect at some spots was 6" high; a few long hanging trees limbs in my spot too. Good solid electric power and city water, cable TV was nice, about 75-80 channels. Tent spots looked outstanding - on wooden decks raised off of the ground. Near shopping (about 2 miles from Walmart and other shops) and lots of restaurants nearby too. We would return, although it would be nice if they had better rates (weekly, discounts, etc).

Very nice state park, beautiful white sand swimming beach, nice looking rental cabins. Good place to come with a boat (launch ramp in the park). You'll see LOTS of deer and wildlife here. Huge RV campsites, some are long pull-thrus, our 36' fit into a back-in just fine. Very steady power supply with great voltage and good clean water. There are no sewer hookups but there is a decent dump station with water for hose rinse. Our Verizon equipment (cell and personal wifi/mifi) worked great, but AT&T was spotty at best. TV brought in about 20 digital channels over-the-air antenna, good reception. Sat. TV dish will not work in most sites - lots of trees. Cons for this state park: fees, fees, fees. Campsite fees are average (approx $30 for W/E hookup), but separate fees for the swimming area, the boat launch, and a 'parking fee' for visitors (really an entrance fee, paid per car). If you don't mind the fees, it's a great place to visit.

The Bedford VA Visitors Center is located at the same place as the National D-Day Memorial (www.dday.org) - the Memorial is on a hilltop directly behind the visitor's center. The visitor's center was kind enough to install 3 RV hook-ups (w/e/sewer) in their side parking lot. Very good spots other than they are slightly sloped. Good water pressure, great power stability, and Wi-Fi from the center is included. At only $25 a night - great! While they do advertise only one night, ask - you may be able to stay longer if there's no events happening. There's also an elementary school across from the RV spots with a walking track!

First off, don't let the name fool you: this is a real campground! The RV section IS NOT within the trailer park, but they are run by the same office. Even though this is a bare-bones, no amenities park, (not even bathrooms! Self-contained units only.) it is clean and easy to use. We didn't need a swimming pool, playgrounds, etc! That simplicity makes it cheaper than others in the area, we found it a nice place to stay for a few days. The place is well marked, easy to find, very easy entrance with paved roads through-out. Large pull-through sites with correctly located hook-ups. Good water pressure and power. Easy sat. TV reception: open field, no trees. Every site has it's own LARGE trash container on wheels. No problems. It is sort of next door and in front of the mobile home park, and alongside the highway, but we were not bothered at all by either one. Great location just down the road from Appomattox National Park.

Price reflects PA which makes it about $25 a night, not a bad deal for the area. Decent place, easy to find from all directions thanks to their excellent signage. Not too far off I-64, even for just an over-nighter. We would stay again. Stayed there twice this year, two weeks the first time (in early June) and a week in August. We came to really like the place. The facilities are decent, some sites are sloped but manageable. The 'super-sites' are perfectly leveled sites and have newer hookups (including a satellite TV dish you can get into) but they are in complete sun all day long. During our first stay we found it to be much too hot up there in 100+ degree weather, so we moved down into the trees. The shaded site we were in also had a cable-TV hookup. It's really their own DirecTV dish, but they will give you a box if you need it. Or use your own and hook to their dish: it's already set up, etc. We had ZERO problems with the staff, in fact they went out of their way to help us with a couple of things. The only real problem we had during our stays were with losing our Dish-TV signal due to lightning hitting the dish, and they came out and fixed it as quick as they could.

Stayed a week here. Nice area for a campground (CG): beautiful open spaces, lots of trees and shade, lots of wildlife, plus a waterpark to boot. BUT we noticed several problems in this park: Hookups for water, sewer, and electric are at times not only far apart, at many spots they are on opposite sides of the site. DO NOT come here {for full hookups} without extension cords suitable for RV electric, plus extra water and sewer hoses. We had a site with electric only, no problems. A very few sites are nearly impossible to level, others 'just' require wood blocks and leveling jacks. Kind of strange because the open areas around the CG are very flat. Saw several MH's with front wheels completely off the ground. Satellite dish very, very questionable, at least 90% of the sites will get zero signal, and no cable TV here, if that's important to you. Over the air TV gets a few channels, but a lot of those are full of static and prone to whiteouts. Spotty cell signal and bring your own Wi-Fi! Our Verizon phone pretty good, Verizon MiFi wireless setup was very marginal (even with outside antenna) which is unusual. AT&T phone was mostly zero signal here. Bathhouses while clean, have nearly zero water pressure. That's not an exaggeration. Low and slow, frustrating. Don't mind showers at a CG if the water pressure is up. Here it is as low as I've ever seen anytime, anywhere, in any CG. Now, to address some good things! Super nice staff, they really know the campground layout and their business. Listen to them, they know what they're talking about. Gov't type park so the sites ARE HUGE, at least 30' wide! The wildlife were many and wonderful. Waterpark very popular with busloads of kids so it must be great. Bull Run is only a little more than 20 miles from DC. And even with no discounts, it is less than half the price of the $60 a night "cherry cg." You can easily drive to catch a metro train if you wish, or go directly to DC via I-66 to the I-495 beltway. Freeways all the way in to the National Mall. That's why, even with all the problems, WE WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN.

Our rate is for Passport America, regular rate $44. Don't think I would pay that anytime. Experience similar to others. I agree, "RESORT" is a vague term sometimes used VERY loosely. Tends to imply high-end, luxury, etc., and that is not the case here. Road in is pretty rough, but it is a county road, and of course, the county / government doesn't care a thing about a tax-paying campground business trying to make it. Stoney Creek "resort" is on a very pretty (but small) lake and there are lots of playgrounds, pool, kiddie-golf, and other activities for kids. Lots of kids on bikes here! So obviously it's a great place for families. We did see long term campers, all pretty neat spots, and we've no problem with that. The lake-front spaces were all full while we were here, don't know it they are long-term or not. Only real problem we had was our first site wasn't level and was too tight for awning due to trees. (Not a bad thing!) So the office girl (really, really, sweet), let us move to an adjoining site. After that we had no problems. They are making improvements here: some new water spigots and new electrical boxes. They were also building a new bathhouse. Pretty nice place, if you have kids. Check their schedule for special events though. This coming weekend there is a motorcycle rally here. We're fine with that (former Harley riders ourselves) and will love it, but you, the wife and kids maybe not so much!

1st - rate shown is the Passport America rate (actually it was $17.50 a night, FHU). Great deal, good for 5 nights at Lakeview. Pros: Nice location, easy in/out off major 4-lane state highway. Very nice restrooms (actually they are individual, private rooms) and a sparkling clean pool. Good steady power and cable tv with about 70 channels, wifi, and sewer hookups. Sat. dish will work from any site. Pet friendly. Has a small restaurant that serves breakfast on weekends. Close to the awesome Bristol Raceway (NASCAR site). Access to river/lake with a boat ramp and private docks. GREAT hosts and owners. [Dang, what's left?] Cons: No paved roads, gravel but level sites. No shaded sites, no trees. OK - I can live with that. 1st class operation & less than 3 minutes to the world's greatest BBQ at Ridgewood restaurant!!!

In Greene County, TN which is so beautiful - it's like stepping back in time to a rural but thriving farming community. The drive from the town of Greeneville to the campground is lovely, lots of pretty farms and great mountain views. This campground is nice, situated on a big bend in the Nolichucky River. $25 price is full-hookup (W/E/S) and includes all taxes. Easy check-in, but no reservations accepted - first come, first serve. Very quiet with the exception of holidays when it's full. Pet friendly, bike friendly, not dish-tv friendly, but very cool with lots of shade right on the river (big trees and lots of them!). We watched a beaver swimming and feeding in the river on our first night here. Improvements have been made in recent years. Full-hookups available, new electic boxes, good water supply. Drive-thru spots may be considered short by some, but our 36' rig and Jeep toad fit fine. Decent roads in/out. Park has a huge swimming pool and lots of picnic areas near the river. One thing lacking is bike and hiking trails, there could be more of them. Great CG hosts (one wonderful couple is from San Diego CA and they work here every year). This campground is about 25 miles off of I-81 at Exit 23 in East Tennessee. It's about 50 miles from the Smokies area. There is a 14-day limit on stays as there is with a lot of TN State Parks.

Our things to add to the GLOWING reviews for this great campground are: - nice-looking rangers patrol in gold carts; gate locks & closes at night (you get a security code) - you can have campfires, but don't bring wood they a big pack here for $6 - Well-constructed bathhouses with exhaust fans + INCREDIBLE water pressure in showers (you may actually have to turn it down or it stings!) - one of the 3 bathhouses is being renovated right now - so brand new ones are coming soon - washer/dryer costs only $1 but only 1 ea machine at each bathhouse - your sat. dish prob won't work / trees (park does have basic cable ~ 13 channels, works well) - AT&T phone works pretty well; Verizon pegged (on both phone and MiFi / 4 bars) - suggest you break out the bug spray and hose out a perimeter on the ground around your rig - we tried to get in on a Friday night, big mistake - no spots avail AT ALL till Sunday night {make reservations on-line, works very well}. Excellent space layout, very private {nobody within 100 feet of us at least!}, good water and power, great showers, easy to maneuver in/out, cheap! This place is worth coming to - don't miss it.

Stayed here four nights to explore St. Augustine, which is about 15 miles away. This place is just fine - it's decent, clean, and quiet. Easy in. Good state highways all the way from I-95. Easy entrance but the inside road to the office and check-in narrows near the waterfront. You can turn around and/or get through. We had no trouble with a 36' motorhome and toad. This is really a riverfront fishing camp & campground with mostly dedicated spots for long-term seasonals (like fishermen!). We were directed by a really sweet office girl to the short-term spots on the far end - away from the riverfront. Only problem we had AT ALL was the satellite TV dish wouldn't pick up any signals (we only have a rooftop dish)- too many trees...like that's a bad thing! Our $22 a night rate (total, tax and all) was Passport America (PA), regular rate is $44. VERY few restrictions on the PA, just call them & see!

Our third visit: time for a review. An extremely quiet, very peaceful place. Staying 2 months instead of 2 weeks this time. Our monthly rate is $475 (cash or check, no credit cards I think). The monthly rate divided by 30 days, explains the $16 nightly rate listed above. Good easy roads coming in, good tree clearance, had some large 90degrees curves but no problems even with a 37ft MH plus Jeep toad. Great security gate closes after hours, has buzzers to staff for visitors and individual codes for entry. Did have to back in to our space, but no problem. Nice level sites, good power, water, and sewer hookup. Picnic table and concrete patio with most. Decent looking and very clean showerhouse / laundry too. Both our phones (Verizon and ATT) work very well here. Satellite TV works well, we have an 'open' site with no obstructions and using fixed dish atop coach, no problems. Due to location (between Orlando and Tampa), we get dozens of channels via digital antenna in addition to DirectTV. I think they have Wi-Fi now, we have our own Mi-Fi so not sure. VERY friendly people, close-knit golf-cart community! Lots of social activities in the two clubhouses (pool tables, games, dinners, dances, even a live music show this week). Most here are 1/2 year, senior snowbirds, no kids except for a few visitors. Long-term residents association, is a plus for all. Has a good working relationship with the owners, no problems here. 1100 acre Lake Lowery is wonderful. Beautiful to view and great to fish! Has a sheltered canal, keep your boat in the water 24/7, for free!!! Only thing that could be considered missing is a pool (but we're snowbirds, so, so what) and an exercise / workout room. But this place is a senior park so neither is really needed I guess. So it's not on the ocean, but it's on a real pretty lake you can fish and keep a boat plus dozens of golf courses nearby. A real Florida jewel, great spot to winter and not outrageously expensive.

Didn't have any trouble going in on the roads, but you should unhook your toad as soon as you get in. Easy night check-in cause there is none, just pick your spot and pay by 10am the next morning. Back-in site was smallish, but OK. The water spigot {older) was broken (hose connector gone) at our site, but it was the only one damaged near us. The electric was OK, but don't overload it. The bathhouse was fine, somewhat dated but usable. Showers were just OK as water pressure was low, but pretty clean. Separate changing area at shower. Playground and pavilion behind it. Make this a stop in TN, the park and waterfalls are beautiful. It is in a quiet country setting and very quiet. We will be back to stay again.

TVA has some good, cheap, public campgrounds, and this one is real decent. It has LOTS of shade, every space is under huge trees along the TN river below Pickwick Dam. Great place to just relax, watch the river and barges go through. The place is being updated in sections. The electric boxes are modern and the water spigots adequate. There is a dump station on the way out. The bath houses are still a little old where we were, but clean as could be expected. As with any place near the water, there will be bugs and frogs. They spray out the entire bathroom with a water hose early in the morning and that helps. Don't let it concern you, cause: The real plus at the bath is WATER PRESSURE. The shower was really great because the pressure was so high - the best water pressure at any place I've ever stayed! (The campsites didn't have that high of a pressure so don't worry about that). And the price is a flat $20 a night, tax included!

August of 2011 - The park IS OPEN, and is still undergoing some renovation due to flood damage. Easy to find (lots of state park signage) and easy in/out even in a big rig with toad. We stayed here 3 nights, good sites, right on Reelfoot Lake. Cheap too, $20 basic site, $25 waterfront. Bath houses have been redone: bright, clean, and breezy. Had a back in site, good and long, no problems with electric or water, good dump station. Got several digital TV stations even with all the great big trees there. Didn't try our dish, but saw several others who did. Take note that there are a lot of bugs here! Mosquitoes are present around this lake everywhere, including in the bathhouses - even despite being cleaned every morning. Just bring some personal bug spray and some bug strength windshield washer fluid & you'll be fine. Good lake view restaurant right down the street. This place is rumored to have the best fishing in Tennessee!

1st: where can you get a full-hookup site AND a pool for only $25 total cost, including tax? And while this is an older campground, the hosts are wonderful, the place is clean, and the pool was a nice, unexpected bonus (stayed in Aug). West side of Jackson TN right off I-40. Close to interstate but noise did not bother us. Easy big rig access, although the entry road looks a little scary - keep going, you'll be surprised. Surrounded by a large crop field, good shade, easy pull-through. Small older bath/shower house inside same building as office. No cable but dish is ok here. Wi-Fi now! pretty good, some spotty coverage but usable if you're in the right space. We planned on one night, stayed for three.

Now let's be fair. This entire campground was almost completely flooded away in 2009, along with most of this part of Nashville. They have started their comeback well here. Night check-in was a breeze: pick a spot from the cards in rack showing avail sites. Check in the next morning, great office staff, sweet! Roads were reasonable, pea gravel, wide turns, one-ways, no problems. My site was barely long enough for our 36' rig and jeep toad. Fairly easy to level with jacks, but I saw lots of travel trailers with several planks under tires. My site had a freeze-proof spigot, fire-ring, picnic table, and cable TV. The whole bathhouse (only one open this time of year) was clean, bright, and warm. I think this is the only campground shower I've ever used that had ceramic tile on the ceiling! I used the handicapped shower unit (before 6am, not many people here in January) and it was huge, at least 6ft square. The other showers were much much smaller. Wi-Fi included security code from office, was difficult to access initially (had to turn off virus program and firewall at first) but after getting in it worked flawless, and was very QUICK! (54 Mbps right now). We usually stay next door, but stopped here due to the "winter specials" sign out front which is how we got a $30 rate for 30 amp (50 amp was $45 and you HAVE to go the way you rig is factory wired, no pigtails or adapters allowed here). Can't speak for all amenities because we were here in the winter, but overall this looks like a good choice (especially at the $30 rate) and from the looks of the work going on in the place, it will only continue to improve as it and all the other camps here recover from the devastating flood.

Stayed for a short week between Christmas and New Years, our 5th time on an ATV ride, once again had a great time. We'd read there was another campground nearby and thought we'd check into it, but found this one is MUCH cheaper than the others, our $30 flat rate included tax (another place nearby quoted us $48 + tax!). Plus we love the manager, she is so funny and helpful plus watches out for us and our gear. She's most of the reason we love staying there and keep going back. The bathhouse was clean as could be expected for an ATV campground (lots of muddy boots here) showers were very hot as usual, we used them a lot. It was COLD there, and lots of snow up high which made for good riding. While 4-wheeling at Windrock / Coal Creek trails we wouldn't stay anywhere else, and we will stay there again.

We usually stay in the loop immediately around the office too. The sites there are newer, very level, and have a wooden deck with a provided gas grill (Trail Loop F, around the pool behind the office). Good playground area here too. This time we choose to stay in an older area of the park where we had not stayed for several years. Had some issues with the rough road on Trail Loop R, and getting the 36ft rig backed in was a bit of a challenge due to trees along the road, but it was do-able. Sites in the older areas (on a hill overlooking the lake, great view) tend not to be very level. We were near a bathhouse which was old but clean and very warm (we were here in a snowstorm, and about 20 degree weather). Place is beautiful in the snow, but you won't get out easily due to hills! Biggest surprise during our winter stay was the staff who came out check on us, un-freeze our water spigot, and pick up the trash. Very friendly and polite, workcampers greeted us as soon as we came through the gate. Wi-Fi was exceptional at our site. Stone Mountain Park is beautiful, and it is THE PLACE to bring kids. Not an amusement park with goofy rides, here there are lots of good physical activities for them that are loads of fun. And don't miss the breakfast buffet at the Stone Mountain Inn, great!

A regular overnight stay for us when passing thru, and still a great value at about $22, which is the price with the discount if you are with Camping World President's Club. Camping World next door, easy walk. This is a pretty nice property with many ponds, lakes. Clean restrooms, good pull thrus, easy late check in, security on site overnight (greeted us at the gate). Will stay here again.

We thought it was nice overall, but crowded. We did come in late and thought it was tight maneuvering our 37 foot class A, the darkness didn't help. Access off I-40 was easy with well-marked signs even in darkness. Even though we only stayed overnight, we hung around the next morning, walked around and fished a little. In the light of day I could see better and although the sites are close, you can easily get in / out if you're careful. The spot we had was a back-in but the one behind was empty so they let us drive through, very helpful. Cable worked great, didn't try Wi-Fi. Trees should be trimmed overhead at entrance/exit but it's passable with no damage. The main office is the bathhouse we used; it was older but VERY clean. I saw another, newer one back by the lake. The grounds were very well kept. With the shallow stream and the pool, this is a good place for kids to play in hot weather. The stream is lined with a large grassy spots and there was more than one pretty mama sunbathing & watching the kids play. Looked very relaxing. We'll come back here - and stay longer next time!

Great access right of I-74 at route 601, real close to Mt Airy. Good roads for big-rigs. Large spots. Family run private campground and their pride shows, roads and property were immaculate, beautiful old farmhouse with view of pond. Good clean bath facilities, but limited in number (full-hookups at every site though). We had fun fishing in ponds (there are two). Caught several nice largemouth bass from the bank, saw some pictures of many 5-6 pounders that have been caught here (on display in office). Nice people on staff. Owner himself led us to our sites with golfcart. We thought we would have to leave later than checkout time: it was confusing that there were two different checkout times (1pm and 3pm) on the check-in paperwork. When I talked to the little weekend girl in the office (very sweet) about it, she just laughed and said "well, that shows you how flexible we are!" I love it! An answer like that really shows just how laid-back and friendly this place is: like everything in "Mayberry" should be! Those down-to-earth attitudes will keep people coming back. We liked Mayberry CG very much, and will stay here during every trip to Mayberry we'll make in the future.

Yes, it's expensive. But it turned out to be a real nice place, even if it's not as "Resort" as it claims to be. As per reviews here, we stayed on the 'sound side' where it was less crowded, very large sites with concrete pads and concrete patios. Very quiet here, beautiful views at sunset. VERY clean modern bathhouse: it's even air conditioned! Had concerns about the water, but it wasn't bad when we were here. Brought a full tank of our own and used that for drinking and cooking, but showered in bathhouse, water seemed ok in there. No smell or bad taste. On the office side there were dozens and dozens of kids on the playground, in the game room, and at the pools. The pools were clean: large outdoor pool, and nice indoor pool with hot tub. A REAL kiddie pool, great for babies, maybe 6-8" deep. And something we didn't know they had: Tennis Courts!! Great family place. We would definitely stay here again.

Great stop on I-95. Large, very clean campground with good facilities. Used to be a KOA, now a family-run operation, and the effort shows. They are expanding with 50 new sites in the back. Right on the banks of a large (multiple-acre) pond / lake. Very easy on and off from interstate with good signage. We liked the large pull-thrus (can leave toad hooked up). Maintainer man was friendly and helpful, loaned us jumper cables and told us just to drop them at the office on our way out. Just a personal note we had to add: Young girl in the office was sweet but remained very professional. Young boys should stay away, she is BREATH-TAKINGLY beautiful!!! It's almost worth the stop just to look at her!

We've been here many times before, and it's still a great vacation. It does look like overall tourism is down at SMP (like everywhere else I guess) but the campground is good and the park is great. We stayed in the premium sites ("Trail F") around the pool and office, and the wooden deck eating area with the stainless steel gas grill was GREAT! Don't be surprised if some of the amenities of the park you like are reduced: the shuttles or water taxi services don't run quite as often, but the park is still great and the lasershow is spectacular again this year!!! GREAT place for kids, no "rides" but many physical challenges like ropes courses, rock climbing walls, and play areas. Really gets them moving, and they loved it...

This is a quiet, convenient place to stay, especially if you don't pull a toad! It is within pretty easy walking distance to the downtown area and Branson Landing. One pleasant surprise was the little trolley service they have now. We walked from the camp about 100 yards to the Branson Landing parking lot (south),caught the parking lot trolley to the Bass Pro Shops, and then transferred to the downtown trolley. The trolleys don't go all the way out on "the strip" but it's still a great way to get around the Landing and downtown. The campground is clean (maintained by the city crews) and the staff is very friendly, and CHEAP at $23. We stayed 4 nights for less than $100 total cost! We will definitely stay here again... with or without a toad.

We visited here again in June, a 2nd trip. We also came last year for the weekend. This is the place to stay to ride quads, dirt-bikes, or jeeps. The trails are fantastic, it's like 70,000 acres of property with hundreds of miles of trails. We stayed at Windrock Campground for 3 days and had a fantastic time. The people here were great, managers are the best! I'm a light sleeper, but we didn't get awakened a single time here. This place is not a KOA, but is very, very clean. They have a great bathhouse with hot showers. The kids loved the campfires: we had smores every night. I will definitely stay here again. Next time we're staying a week!!!

WOW! This place is the cats. In a stunningly beautiful area (north GA and western NC mountains, and as well kept a campground as I've ever seen. And in all our travels I've never seen a campground with an INDOOR POOL! It's heated and jets make it like a HUGE hot tub. I can't wait to come back in the winter (this place is open year round). The very clean outdoor pool also has a small hot tub connected, great! Sites are nice and level, good cable TV, great wireless internet with 3 separate networks to choose from so you will always get a strong signal. Don't tell too many people- we want to keep this one quiet and always available for us to use!

This is one of our favs; well run, clean, and the "perks" are great. We stay here and use the free "water taxi" or Marriott shuttle bus over to the park, no toad needed! The pool is cool and clean. There is a nice little store and planned activities for kids, too. They let us pitch a kids tent next to the MH at no extra charge- up to 6 persons per site. Some of the spots are not level so just bring some extra levelers or boards. Even the worst are not sloped too bad - and the ones that are have a great view of the lake. The premium spaces around the pool (Row F) are the best (wood patios!) but go fast so make a reservation.

Not at all worth considering. The place has a nice pool, but they let in locals (for $) so it's always crowded with loud trailer trash moms and wild kids. Meanwhile the "petting zoo" is a cruel little crowded pen, pitiful. Owner is scary-looking biker dude who doesn't care. And worst of all, although it's not directly their fault -sometimes that's just camping- we got a SEVERE infestation of ants (like a bad horror movie!). The girl at the desk just laughed, saying, "Wll, that's just Georgia." (Funny we were at the Stone Mountain GA campground for a week right before this, and had absolutely no problems there!) Guess we should have listened to the guy who is staying at Calhoun KOA long term who was out that evening spraying for ants. Avoid this place like the plague!

We looked for a place to stay while visiting friends nearby and stumbled onto this little campground - it was easy to find off of I-40 near Cookeville (about midway between Nashville and Knoxville). The gravel driveway was excellent, very wide with easy turns and plenty of space to back up into the site we stayed in. The GREAT surprise was the attached restaurant which (OF COURSE) specializes in catfish caught fresh from the lakes on the property. Very reasonable prices, even for all you can eat which is every day after 4:30pm (restaurant is closed on Wednesdays). Good place for kids too cause they allow fishing (pay lake); you can even catch your own catfish and they will serve it to you in the restaurant. Really sweet serving girls in the restaurant too, great service.

Like other comments, we have twice stopped in here for the night while traveling to/from Florida. Great overnight stay place with easy after-hours check-in. Good Sam discounts too, although they prefer cash payment with that. We had no trouble with cable TV wires, it worked great. It was extremely quiet here, but then again we stayed here in Dec. Will stay here often when passing thru - easy easy access.

This is a government park, hence the low rates. But is is very nice, shaded, and clean. We came in after dark, and the night check-in process was a breeze. Our site was level and in the trees. Kind of in the backcountry but good signs and roads to get there. Good choice if you're going to Shiloh National Battlefield - not many campgrounds in this area.

We just happened to see this place as we were visiting Shiloh National Battlefield (which is a beautiful place btw). The RV park appears to be abandoned, even though hookups were visible, they looked ancient. There was not anyone camped here except a very old camper with a beatup Camaro parked out front - no tow vehicle. Guess he lives there. We moved on to Pickwick Dam campground (12 miles) which was wonderful. If you see the sign for Battlefield Campground - don't bother.

I thought this was a beautiful place, very peaceful. It is an oasis. We stayed there with two kids, and they had a ball. Very clean grounds, and the pool was wonderful.

Great back country park for people (like us) who ride dirt bikes and four-wheelers on Windrock Mountain, East Tennessee. We really like it cause we can ride straight up to the trails w/o having to load the bikes on a trailer. The people there are real nice, but even so they strictly enforce the quiet hours, and won't tolerate rowdy behavior - which we're thankful for. Nice hot showers and they allow campfires too, great after a long day of riding. This is a great place to stay with kids who ride.

I have camped in a motorhome for 14 years, and stayed at literally scores of campgrounds. This is ONE OF THE BEST! The "sparkling" bathrooms were exactly that (even cleaner than my mother in law's - and she is way beyond picky). I truly have never seen anything like it - not only in any campground, but in any "public" place restroom. congratulations to the owners for running a 1st class operation. Highly recommended. (OH- and the campground's own shuttle bus to the Passion Play was GREAT! It saved us cause we don't use a toad)
